Hi,

Just to let you know that if you use a temporary build directory to build
Zope 2.10, the setup.py script fails.

I know, I am using python 2.5 (making some tests) but this issue is
unrelated.

Below, "build" is an empty directory and "src" is the untared Zope source.

STEP 1

cd build/Zope-2.10.0-b2 &&
/opt/pperegri/F2BUILDS/F2.15/src/Zope-2.10.0-b2/configure
--prefix=/opt/pperegri/F2BUILDS/F2.15/opt/Zope-2.10.0-b2          --optimize
--with-python=/opt/pperegri/F2BUILDS/F2.15/opt/Python-2.5/bin/python

Using Python interpreter at
/opt/pperegri/F2BUILDS/F2.15/opt/Python-2.5/bin/python

Configuring Zope installation

  - Zope top-level binary directory will be
/opt/pperegri/F2BUILDS/F2.15/opt/Zope-2.10.0-b2.
  - Distutils install flags will be "--optimize=1 --no-compile"
  - Makefile written.

  Next, run make.

=> OK (generates makefile in the build directory)

STEP 2

"/opt/pperegri/F2BUILDS/F2.15/opt/Python-2.5/bin/python"
"/opt/pperegri/F2BUILDS/F2.15/src/Zope-2.10.0-b2/setup.py" \
            build 
--build-base="/opt/pperegri/F2BUILDS/F2.15/build/Zope-2.10.0-b2/build-base/p
ython-2.5" 
--build-lib="/opt/pperegri/F2BUILDS/F2.15/build/Zope-2.10.0-b2/build-base/py
thon-2.5/build-lib"
--build-scripts="/opt/pperegri/F2BUILDS/F2.15/build/Zope-2.10.0-b2/build-bas
e/python-2.5/build-scripts"
--build-temp="/opt/pperegri/F2BUILDS/F2.15/build/Zope-2.10.0-b2/build-base/p
ython-2.5/build-temp"

=> FAILURE:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/pperegri/F2BUILDS/F2.15/src/Zope-2.10.0-b2/setup.py", line 53,
in <module>
    import versions
ImportError: No module named versions
make: *** [build] Error 1

CAUSE:

The problem comes from this code in setup.py (which did not exist in Zope
2.8):

sys.path.insert(0, 'inst')
import versions
del sys.path[0]

ZOPE_VERSION = '%s%s-%s' % (versions.ZOPE_MAJOR_VERSION,
versions.ZOPE_MINOR_VERSION, versions.VERSION_RELEASE_TAG)

If I change it to:

try:
    MAKEFILEDIR = os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__))
except:
    MAKEFILEDIR = os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(sys.argv[0]))
sys.path.insert(0, '%s/inst'%MAKEFILEDIR)
import versions
del sys.path[0]

ZOPE_VERSION = '%s%s-%s' % (versions.ZOPE_MAJOR_VERSION,
versions.ZOPE_MINOR_VERSION, versions.VERSION_RELEASE_TAG)

Everything works fine.

Thanks for reading up to this point :)
